Silvio was my classmate a million years ago at Coral Gables Senior High. He had the most beautiful smile, the type that would light up a room. Always very kind and quiet. My most sincere condolences during this most difficult, painful time. May he rest in peace and may the ones left behind find comfort in the Lord.

I was deeply saddened to read of Silvio's passing. He ended his journey here on earth much too soon.
Ugly Betty, his brilliant creation and wonderful show, brought so much joy and laughter to me, and to so many other loyal watchers of the show.
I rushed home every Friday evening to see Betty who became a part of my family.
Silvio will live on forever
through his work, and Betty and the characters he created will always hold a special place in my heart.
May you find eternal peace in God's arms Silvio.
